(b Valencia, 27 Feb. 1863; d Cercedilla, nr. Madrid, 10 Aug. 1923). Spanish painter and illustrator, active mainly in his native Valencia and in Madrid. He was a prolific and popular artist, working on a wide variety of subjects—genre, portraits, landscapes, historical scenes—and producing many book illustrations. His pleasant and undemanding style was marked by brilliant high-keyed colour and vigorous brushwork, representing a kind of conservative version of Impressionism.
